Part of the Wates Group, SES Engineering Services, has picked up two major M&E packages in Central London which are worth more than £30 million between them.
SES has been chosen to deliver mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) services on Argent’s 12 storey S2 office building for Google, which is part of the King’s Cross regeneration scheme.
SSE has also secured an MEP contract worth £18.6 million on Barts Square Phase One, which is a £110 million residential development by Helical next to St Bart’s Hospital in Farringdon. The main contractor for both projects will be Carillion.
Offsite construction is playing a major role on both projects as logistics is a primary consideration in city centres, particularly in London.
Before being acquired by Wates last year, SES was formerly Shepherd Engineering Services and Wates said that the two contract awards represented a significant milestone for SES’ operations in London and the South East.
The company put the King’s Cross contract win down to its digital engineering expertise, in response to the client’s requirement for building information modelling (BIM).
SES has a 38 week programme which is due to be complete by December next year and will use its off-site manufacturing facility SES Prism to deliver a CHW roof plantroom and 22 risers.
Off-site manufacturing processes at SES Prism will also be used on the Barts Square scheme to design and install service cupboards for each apartment.
SES regional director Tim Cunningham said: “This is a truly exciting time for our London and South East operation and the growth of our business is down to our teams’ exemplary work and innovative off-site approach.
“Our SES Prism facility is at the forefront of M&E installations, meaning we can offer the most effective solutions to even the most technically complex projects, adding real value to our clients so we’re delighted to be able to demonstrate this again on both these schemes.”
